We know how important to have an ocean relaxation and a sunny impulse to your health. After many years of traveling south of America we have settled in the area of Norfolk,VA because of many reasons : 1) sea shore is calm and so gentle that is hard to imagine you are on the ocean beach – no need to keep holding your kids` hands when you are in the water; 2)the climate here is more comfortable because of low humidity – no need to keep air conditioner on during the summer nights; 3) the long beach line gives you feeling that it is a private beach – you won`t be squeezed by others while you are swimming; 4) historical and cultural benefits in the area are endless >>>;5)our house is very cozy – 2 bed rooms , 1 bathroom, laundry with dryer, kitchen with all tools if you like to cook , tv, internet (high speed ,WiFi access), a little library with old and new magazines, and a bunch of toys for kids, a wooden gazebo ( 7x10f) to relax on backyard and make a barbecue for your family and your pets ( a pet house with separate rooms for cats and dogs); 6)the walk to the ocean takes 7-10 min on the beautiful alley of oak and pine trees , or you can always leave your car at secured public beach parking ( 300 m from the house); 7) Ocean Beach Blvd is a place where a lot of pubs restaurants café pizza houses located, the closest one (250m) is with alive music on weekends. Fishing pear - 2 km and big grocery store with organic section – 2 km; 8) great ambiance of friendly neighborhood; 9) a 30 min way to numerous attractions and fun destinations of Virginia Beach, largest attic stores in America, zoo, museums, arenas etc.

Very nice place
I loved the house and yard. It was very nice and well kept. The bathroom is small, so if you have mobility issues or if you are a bigger person you may have problems—I am six foot and could not sit straight on the commode. The tub however was very large and I realize that there is obviously nothing the homeowner can do about the size of the bathroom. The beds however were not very comfortable at all. I recommend new mattresses. We did not walk to the beach, it seemed a little far, but it took perhaps five minutes to drive and there are several tasty dining establishments nearby. We spent a lot of time outside in the yard. I look forward to making this an annual trip and hope to stay again. I feel like if we stayed later in the summer the A/Cs would not make it, but that may be our preference to have a cold house.
Adorable Home Away from Home
Loved this property; cute, well appointed, and comfortable. The fully fenced yard including the driveway was awesome for our little dogs. My favorite VRBO ever! Thanks! :)
Great house minutes from East Beach
Great house located minutes from East Beach, about 25 minutes from Virginia Beach. The house had everything we needed. I stayed with 1 other adult, a teenaged boy and 2 little children, it was plenty of room for us. Washer and dryer a definite plus! Only reason I gave 4 stars and not 5, is because there’s no central air conditioning, 1 ac unit in dinning area and 1 ac unit in each bedroom and the house is 25 minutes from Va beach, which is why we were in town. Also, the street parking is really crowded so make sure you use the gated in drive way at the back of the house.
I will definitely consider this property for future stays. Oh also, the door code was a little tricky we had to call for assistance to get in.
Lovely home with lots of room
The house was very nice, the beds were comfy and it was very peaceful. We had two large dogs, and the house had a large fenced yard for them to run in. Will definitely use again when we return to Virginia Beach.
We had a great stay! We were looking for a weekend away and got exactly what we wanted! We cooked most of our meals in and we had everything we needed! The bathroom is small but manageable. The neighborhood was very nice and you are close to everything you need! Thank you for letting us stay!
Thanks for your appreciation of my place!
Terrible bed, tiny bathroom, no dishwasher, random constuction material in kitchen cabinets
Not as advertised. Overall we made it work. We were there for almost 3 months for a military school. Review would be better if it was only for a weekend - here's why:
The lady next door handles everything for the owners. She's nice, but creepily watches EVERYTHING.
The "king size" bed is two bed put together with sheets on top - not a king size bed! They feel like box springs, not a mattress. We had to buy a really nice topper to even try to sleep. The beds are chained together so they stay together, mostly, but they also roll so we would wake up and the bed would be a few inches off the wall and the pillows would fall.
Unless they install one and state it in the ad, there's no dishwasher. Fine for a weekend, not for months at a time.
I am a 5'11" average-athletic man. I cannot walk straight into the bathroom, I have to turn to my side to get past the sink and wall. I have to open the shower doo to sit on the toilet.
Upstairs started to remodel but was gutted. Junk everywhere and unusual.
A/C situation is two window units, one for each room, and one that plugs in. The plugged in one cannot keep up in hotter months. Heat is a few space heaters that work fine for one room each, but the rest of the house can get cold, but overall not a big deal. Don't run more than 3 at a time. Even with 3 it sometimes threw the breaker.
Parked on the street because it was inconvenient to have to open the gate, pull onto the street, then get out and shut the gate.
Corner house with a surprising amount of traffic. A ton of people blow right through the stop signs (4-way) even when kids are around.
There's a relatively deep hole in the front yard about the size of a softball. Dangerous if children are playing. Not sure what it was used for but it isn't like someone just dug some dirt out.
Furniture is not as pictured in the ad. We were there with our three kids, which is probably why this happened, but there was a bed in the living room. The neighbor lady probably put it there trying to help, I guess, but we ended up putting it in the 2nd bedroom next to the other bed.
House was a little dirty and had a weird smell. My wife had to dust and clean a lot the first week. Smell went away after that and from having windows open a lot.
When just walking normal the floor is loud and shakes the whole house. Hated that
Quick walk to the beach (.5 mi).
Quick drive to grocery stores, a few restaurants, etc. A little over 20 to get downtown.
Friendly neighbors and a lot of kids
I am very sorry you did not have a good experience staying at my place and my property did not meet your expectations. I hoped to create a nice cozy home and can only say that if you read other reviews, you will see that this is not how I operate.
I would be happy to help you if you had contacted me during your stay and had told me about your inconveniences. My apologies again for caused disappointments.
